Mars - Antarctica Connection

From Earth to Mars Via Antarctica?

In 1665 Newton was doing his light experiments and discovering that light had "successive motion," that it had a speed and was not instantaneous. Also in 1665 the Jesuit mathematician Athanasius Kircher published his theory of "polar vortices." In 1667 Louis XIV established the Paris Observatory and the Paris meridian. In 1671 Richer determined the distance between Earth and Mars based on the parallax between the Paris meridian and the French Guiana meridian. The difference in the Mars observation was only 23 seconds of arc: but enough to make a very good estimate of 32,625,000 miles.

Nineteenth century European mathematics may have led impressionable minds to postulate that Mars can be reached by a land-route through the Earth’s South Pole "hole," if indeed such a thing exists. Mathematically, a group-theoretic topology of embedded spheres is not altogether inconsistent with the idea of a physical land connection; arguments can be made for and against. One can temper the radicalism of a land connection by considering only the magnetic fields of the planets. The big picture is a sharing of a single universal geometry.
